YAK Car Pic of the Day

Wally's '53 Chevy 210

A few Thursdays back we took a look at Ward Cleaver’s 1957 Ford from “Leave It To Beaver.” Well, eventually The Warden let Wally buy his own car — and what a beauty! This 1953 Chevy 210 convertible had obviously seen better days by the time Wally bought it, but hey, at that age if the car’s yours, it’s great! Chevy only made 5,617 of the 210 ragtops, compared to  24,047 of the higher-priced Bel Air. This episode, “Wally Buys A Car,” first aired on January 10, 1963 in the show’s final season.
